Stuck In The Moment. ♥

Hey guys!  This is a very late post about what I'm going to blog about.  Very late.  /smirks

Anyways, you guys probably know what happened here in Manila last May 10, 2011.  Well, if you have no idea, Justin Bieber came to Manila! Yeah!

Well at first, I wasn't that excited about the concert since tickets were too expensive and I wasn't sure if they were still available!  But thanks to my sister's persuading skills, she got my dad to check Ticket World for info!  By luck, there were still 13 tickets available! Yay!

While my sister and I waited for May 10, we started to prepare essentials we would need for the concert. Like a Justin Bieber tshirt!  Luckily, we found some in The Perfect White Shirt.  My friend Danica (who also went to the concert with me) made two banners.

On May 10, I actually had cooking lessons, so I ended up smelling like food during the taxi ride to the MOA Concert Grounds.  My dad was already lining up for us.  He was there since 2pm! And the concert was at 8:00pm!

Man, it was packed!  The whole area was overtaken by girls, if you ask me.  Haha!  The picture on the left is from the line.  It was a good thing my dad got a spot near the front of the line (since the tickets we got were free seating).

Almost everyone was in purple!  It was so funny, cause my mom was going to be watching the concert with us.  After noticing, she turned to me and asked, "Arielle, what's with purple today?" I couldn't help but laugh!  I was like, "Mom! Purple is Justin's favorite color!"  Hahaha!

Then Danica arrived and joined us in the line.  The security started letting people in at around 5pm.  Man, people were running like crazy!  It was so much fun! Haha!  We got good seats, but sadly, security took away our banners. /sniff I don't really know why.  They took away all our hard work.

Here's a picture of the place after everyone was in.  If Justin ever comes back to the Philippines, he should have his concert at Araneta.  Seriously. /laughs

We had McDonald's for dinner.  You're not allowed to bring even bottled water in there!  Suxx.

Poreotics were Justin's front act. They were awesome.  They even taught the audience how to dougie!  "Step, step. Cross, cross.  Wheelchair, wheelchair."  Lol~

Then after Poreotics, a DJ came up and started playing music.  He even put a countdown to count the minutes 'till Justin would finally be on stage.

After 15 long minutes, Justin finally came on stage.  At last! Here's the order of all the songs he sang:

  • Love Me
  • Bigger
  • U Smile
  • Runaway Love
  • Never Let You Go
  • I'll Be
  • Favorite Girl
  • One Less Lonely Girl
  • Stuck In the Moment
  • Somebody to Love
  • Never Say Never
  • One Time
  • That Should Be Me
  • Eenie Meenie
  • Pray
  • Baby
It was amazing!  Sadly, he was sick during the show.  He had asthma and chest infection.  But he gave us Filipinos the best show. /thumbs up

Thank you Justin for officially bringing SWAG here in Manila!

We will be remembered.

"Long live, the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shine, just for me and you
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders, one day we will be remembered"
Long Live, Taylor Swift

Long Live has been stuck in my head for these past few days.  I was thinking, "This could be a good graduation song." Haha!  Yes, I have been listening to a lot of Taylor Swift.  (And Justin Bieber)

So what have you guys been up to?  Well, I've been pretty much obsessed with Nickelodeon's new TV series, House of Anubis.  It's like my favorite show now.  I have no favorite character because I practically like the entire cast!  Every time I watch, I'll be thinking, "Oh how I wish I could study in a boarding school like House of Anubis and then I get to solve mysteries and stuff like that!  That would be legit!"  Oh wait, there's HoA later!  Yay!  I better watch.  Haha!  Shows my obsession with British things.  I am such an anglophile!

Oh no!  I am 21 books behind in my 2011 Reading Challenge.  Ugh.  MUST. READ. MORE.  Speaking of reading,  I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Hihihi.  I just love the smell of paperback books.  (Random, much?)

A random thought just popped up in my head.  If I could hind in anyone's attic, whose would I hide in?  Hmm..OH! I'd probably hide in Tim Burton's attic.  Maybe I could find loads of his old drawings there.  Tim Burton is just amazing!  Really amazing.  I love Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland.  /thumbs up

I've been looking for the book, Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I really want to read that book, but it wasn't available in Fully Booked the last time I asked.  I'm also looking for the DVD!  I was watching the trailer of the movie and I really want to watch it with my best friends! /winkwink

Anyways, that's all for tonight.  See you guys later!
